're watching from the president, his white house, this new strike team. there are some of leaders right there, these democratic lawmakers. do you think there's enough time for the president to rewrite the narrative on obama care? >> absolutely. absolutely, thomas. the main point that has to be made is that the current system before the aca is absolutely dysfunctional. 48 million people, no health insurance. we spent twice as much per capita on health care as the people of any other nation. if we spent what other nations spent on health care, we'd save $900 billion a year. 45,000 people die in this con electroeve -- country every year because they don't have insurance and don't get to the doctor on time. we pay the highest price in the world on prescription drugs. this is a system that cannot last. in my view, i think we should be moving toward a medicare for all single payer system. but the aca is a step forward. 20 million people have more health insurance. we end the disaster of the obscenity, the obscenity of this pre-existing conditions imposed upon us by the insurance companies. now, the
